The textile sector employees about 30% of workforce and makes up to 9% of Pakistan’s GDP. The performance of agriculture sector is not up to the mark and there are several reasons behind it. One reason being the difficulty in obtaining fertilizers. The total supply of fertilizers is less than the demanded quantity. The fertilizer manufacturing companies do have a capacity of meeting the demand but are not producing as much they can. A question arises that what can be the possible causes for such low production.
